CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Foundation has pledged an additional $50,000 to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi for the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Scholarship Endowment. Mariella Jimenez, a freshman education major, has been selected to receive the scholarship. Jimenez, who is the first in her family to graduate from high school and attend college, will receive $5,000 a year for four years.

“Every time I walk through the Hector P. Garcia Plaza on campus for the next four years of my education, I will be looking at the man who made my dreams possible,” said Jimenez. “I feel a lot of relief that I won’t have to burden my family with the cost of my education since I have three other siblings.”
